How can I get a car loan online?

For the first time in my life, I decided to fully embrace the 21st century and order a new car online. I already know which vehicle I want, but I need to take out a car loan before I can order it. I’m thinking I want to get my car loan online, but I have no idea where to start. What’s the best way to get a car loan online?

Answer
It’s great to hear you’re embracing car buying online, so it makes sense you’re considering a car loan online as well!
Fortunately, getting a car loan online is simple and comparable to applying in person. While the required information varies, in general, lenders want:
  • Proof of identity, including your SSN
  • Proof of residence
  • Proof of income
  • Employment information and history
  • Information about the vehicle you want to purchase
Before signing an agreement, you should compare offers from multiple lenders to ensure you’re getting the best rate and research the lender to confirm their legitimacy. Additionally, many traditional lenders accept online applications, so you should consider visiting the websites of:
  • National banks
  • Local banks
  • Credit unions
Along with getting your loan and car online, consider purchasing your new car insurance there as well. Jerryis an insurance comparison app that can generate quotes from more than 50 top insurance companies in seconds.
After selecting a policy in the app, Jerry will handle all the paperwork and phone calls so that you don’t have to, and if you ever have any questions, agents are just a text away.
